not liking the costume.

Posted by Duo_forbidden

Oh, wow. That is a beautiful cover. It makes her new costume stand out more than the regular cover. And she doesn't have that weird hairdo.

Great cover.

Excellent work from Granov, as usual.

I like it.

Looks great. A nice mix of the old and establish and the new and fantastic.

I really dig the costume without the weird headpiece. I think it's a good cross between Carol's Ms. Marvel costume and the traditional Captain Marvel uniform. The mask thing I'm not a fan of.

That's much better

Sh!t the bed

As always, Granov's work is second-to-none. Love Carol's new look, and that hair is far better than the long fauxhawk she seems to actually be sporting!

The costume with the helmet, and drawn by Dexter Soy looks very good in comic from the teasers we've seen, this does not look great to be honest.

The costume sucks but the artwork is awesome.

I don't like the costume.....

Great cover. I like the new costume and promotion to Captain Marvel, the title Ms. Marvel just seemed so dated.

I actually kinda like the hair, its weird, but it works in a weird way. I can't say I'm as much of a fan of the costume, I love the idea of a flight suit cos she used to be in the air force but the symbols and colours are very wonder womany, it could be a bit more distinct.

O_O awesome

Nice cover.

Posted by Mega_spidey01

she's looks like actress ali Larter.

Posted by lannister

the costume is awesome

Posted by Mercy_

Granov is amazing.

Posted by Smart_Dork_Dude

Totally gonna check this out. I like Carol, and it's good to see her being put in a bigger role in the Marvel U

Posted by elderfingolfin

I liked the concept that inspired the costume, but the final result of the art is disappointing

Posted by The Stegman

Great art, horrible costume.

Posted by revbucky

Let's give it a chance.

Posted by Ganthetsward20

Looks outstanding to me :)

Posted by Nova`Prime`

If only I hadn't sworn off Marvel.. oh well I really dig the costume and the thought of Carol taking over the role of the new Captain Marvel... hopefully it sticks and brings the Marvel cosmic back to its own.

Posted by Ferris08

i don't get why she had to change costumes in the first place just because she got a new name..

Posted by hectorsquall

The hair looks much better but the rest, not so much :(

Posted by Meteorite

I'm debating whether or not to pick this up. Is Kelly DeConnick a good writer?

Posted by evilvegeta74

What a waste in the title of Captain Marvel, she's Ms. Marvel and always will be ! They should have just let the real Mar-vell return and given Ms. Marvel her own book. I gurantee it won't last a year!

Posted by RainEffect

As long as she doesn't have that mullet hair, I'm in full support of this costume transition.

Team Carol!

Posted by BritishMonkey

Why are so many complaining about the costume or the hair all the time?

I think it's just people complaining to complain. But i can name 3 things great about this cover.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

This cover looks awesome. Better than the mullet we see in the other one I must say.

Posted by sora_thekey

Long(er) hair! YES!!!

Posted by kamionero

Oh Hallo thar Julia Stiles!!!

(Or maybe Ali Later?)

Posted by Bobzenub

Marvel really should decide if they want to roll with the mullet hair or not. Other than that I kinda dig the costume.

Posted by daedalus25

I still think this is a stupid idea and won't last.

Posted by TDK_1997

With Adi Granov's artwork her costume doesn't look that lame.

Posted by KidChipotle

Better than the original.

Posted by herrweis

done well but ugly costume

Posted by KidSupreme


Posted by Cosmic_Supreme

Can't wait for this to come out! I'm getting this day one at my comic shop!
